Submission + - Will Windows Storage Go from SAN Back to NAS with SMB 3.0? ->

msmoriarty writes: According to Redmond magazine columnist Greg Sheilds, with Windows 8/Windows Server 2012, the Windows world may be moving away from SAN and back to NAS. From the article: " "Consider the high-level requirements you place on storage: excellent performance with low CPU overhead, fault tolerance, load balancing, simultaneous access by multiple cluster hosts, back-up support...Achieving all of this today with a SAN requires added protocols, techniques and management tools because today's SMB protocol doesn't support today's storage requirements. But why not just update the SMB protocol?" And that's what it appears Microsoft has done with SMB 3.0.
